1adam12 - chopper, bum jacket, going slow .. bookem DannO!
Got to ride today, it didn't rain. Saw Chris' project at Speed Shop Design coming together even more. All in all a good day.
Got pulled over by the police going slow in the evening. I always get pulled over on choppers just riding along around here. They said I didn't stop at the light when I made a right turn against it. Balancing feet up at a stop never counts. Doesn't matter that you can take off faster with a foot clutch with your feet up. One foot on the clutch and one on the rear brake. if it's clear you go, if a cars coming just put your foot down since your already at a standstill. Explaining this is futile. I didn't get a ticket just a warning. Which was darn nice of them.
popo- You need to get mirrors on that.
perp -I do have a mirror.
popo-Well you didn't seem to see us behind you right away.
perp - I was watching the crest of this hill to make sure no one turned left into me at the top of it... yes your right officer.
popo - Watch out they're doing speed traps on this road.
perp - Thanks I appreciate it.. but this thing aint no crotch rocket.. it's 60 yrs old. If you get me going fast I should get a trophy!
